Thank you for allowing me to use the image of the Children’s stick insect on Craig’s hand attributing to Craig and your website. On the 16th of February 2014 when we found this none of the twenty people at our Camp (Camp Eureka) had ever seen a children’s stick insect before even though our total ages added together came close to 1000 years. We were extremely intrigued and had it correctly identified at the Melbourne Museum.

You are most welcome Marie,
Did the museum provide the identification based on your image or did you actually supply the Children’s Stick Insect in the flesh?
I have copied in these emails to tell you that the stick insect flew away, while we were not watching, and after we had taken a small twig out of its wing. So we just supplied a photo to the museum..
Thanks for the additional information Marie.
